After the record-setting year that the Monster Hunter franchise has had, it’s not unexpected to hear this news: a Monster Hunter film is officially in the works. But, don’t get your hopes up, just yet. The film is being directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, and stars Milla Jovovich, the exact team behind the Resident Evil franchise of films. According to Variety, Anderson recently delivered the film’s latest draft, and the Monster Hunter movie will start shooting in South Africa this September. In 2016, Anderson revealed his early thoughts on what the film will be about:
An ordinary man in a dead end job discovers that he is actually the descendant of an ancient hero. He must travel to a mystical world to train to become a Monster Hunter, before the mythical creatures from that world destroy ours. The central characters are very relatable American characters. You take a person from the ordinary world who thinks they’re in a dead-end job, they have no future, they feel like their life’s a failure, it’s going nowhere, like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix. It’s about a normal American who gets dragged into this parallel world, this Monster Hunter world. Then eventually the parallel world ends up coming to our world. So you have the creatures from the Monster Hunter world invading our world.
Capcom has shared the first official trailer announcing the release of the Mega Man X Legacy Collections, 1 and 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1 + 2 releases in North America on July 24th, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
In what is most certainly a shock for the company, Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World has surpassed 7.5 million units sold, making it the companies highest selling home console game of all time. This number beats out the likes of the biggest in the Resident Evil, Street Fighter, and Mega Man series of games.
Good gameplay and a massive online presence built on collaboration has given the game fantastic word of mouth across both the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down despite competition.
Capcom hosted a Mega Man (Rock Man) 30th Anniversary stream on Twitch this morning, and as expected unveiled some pretty great Mega Man news, with our first proper entry into the series in several years. Mega Man 11 is set to hit Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC late next year, and our first trailer is above.
On top of that, a Mega Man X collection was also unveiled featuring the entire Mega Man X series for players to revisit.
Capcom has debuted a beautiful new trailer for the upcoming HD-update to the fan-favorite, Okami HD. The new trailer shows us what to expect from the remaster, and its updated visuals.

Okami HD releases in North America and Europe on December 12th, 2017, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Capcom has finally confirmed its long-awaited Okami HD/4K remaster with the announcement of Okami: Zekkei for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game releases in Japan on December 21st, with a physical release on the PS4 and PC releasing on December 13th.

Capcom has unveiled the first batch of DLC costumes, available to players who pre-ordered the game. Those costumes are Warrior Thor, Evil Ryu, Gladiator Hulk, and Command Mission X. The game’s release is imminent this month, so if you’re hoping to get your hands on these babies, you might want to get on it.
However, which costumes you get depends on which version of the game you pre-order. The $59.99 standard edition only gets you Evil Ryu, and Warrior Thor. If you want all four?

Hit the jump to check out a trailer for the costumes.

Capcom has shockingly announced a new Puzzle Fighter title coming to iOS and Android mobile gaming devices. The game will play just like every other Puzzle Fighter, but now players will take control of characters from across the pantheon of Capcom properties, such as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Resident Evil, Mega Man, and Dead Rising.
The game is playable at PAX West this weekend, and will launch later this year.
Capcom has announced a partnership with iam8bit, in which they’ll be releasing a special limited edition cartridge re-print of Street Fighter II in honor of the series’ 30th Anniversary. The cartridge will be available in two colors: Opaque Ryu Red, and Translucent Glow-in-the-Dark Blanka Green. The collectible is limited to 5,500 pieces, with 1,000 randomly selected orders being the Blanka Green color variation.
The cartridge will carry the original game code, making it a full re-release of the original game, and is completely playable on NTSC Super Nintendo consoles.
Kotaku UK has a scoop, claiming that Okami HD is getting another re-release, this time on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this holiday season. There’s no real information about the release, currently, but it’s a good chance that the title will receive PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support, with the PlayStation 3 version of Okami HD rendering the visuals in 4K, and the scaling them down.
Capcom is taking initiative in bringing many of its older titles to newer consoles, but in the process, most of their newer IP’s have taken a backseat, with new major titles being few and far between for the company at this point. It’s nice to see lesser-ported titles like Okami finally making the jump to systems such as the Xbox, though.
Sony’s E3 conference went about as expected, but on the other hand, it also had some insane surprises that no one would have ever expect, but they are damn sure welcome. While the majority of the show were updates to titles shown at last year’s E3, we were also given a few new projects that have been in the pipeline. Quite secretly, I might add.
Sony was absolutely a mixed bag this year. When they delivered, they delivered, but their misses were some pretty heavy missteps as far as interest. Hit the jump to check out the full rundown of the show.

James Wan, director of Aquaman, and producer of many successful modern horror franchises, has been tapped by Constatin Films and Screen Gems to produce a complete reboot of the popular franchise for the big screen. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter apparently was the final chapter in that story, and we’ll now see a new one, with a completely new cast.
No story details are available, or character for that matter. However, we do know that Greg Russo will be working on the script for the first of a planned 6-film franchise reboot. Hopefully, we see some familiar faces in these new films, as there is plenty of great ideas to work with in the Resident Evil world.
